We used to come here years ago and I always remembered being wowed! Although the service and ambiance was great, something was missing. I started with broccoli cheddar soup. I seemed a bit gritty or curdled but it was blended so there were just tiny...More

Perfect spot for a late evening dinner after a perfect day of birdwatching at the wildlife refuge. Had the pan seared scallops with roasted brussel sprouts, pancetta and organic mushroom cream along with the golden beet capers -- divine!

One of very few places to eat on Plum. Friendly, helpful staff. Freshly cooked fish. Great atmosphere. Mix of locals and holidaymakers. Sunset views towards Newburyport.

Not my first visit dealing with the bartender on Sundays. She is so miserable to say the least, not even a half a smile or can ever pick her head up to acknowledge you unless she knows who you are apparently. I was hoping to...More

Friends brought me to what we locals affectionately call the "PIG" for my birthday. We shared the mussels -- BEST anywhere in my opinion, then I ordered the Lobster Ravioli. My son owns a lobster & seafood restaurant and I've live on this island most...More
